Kid, I think pics are going to be required here!
I think I'm okay power wise. My house is only a few years old and it was a high quality build so am going to rule out power noise using that Voodoo 2. I think it's the bypass issue for sure. A few of my pedals are true bypass for sure, like my Carbon Copy (did some reading last night) but, and my swapping around confirms this, some like my MXR Chorus are not. It's not a lot of noise (my Vox Valvetronic was louder by itself) but I notice it. I'll make sure all the other pedals I buy are true bypass. I'll also make a point to upgrade to Lava when I'm building my actual pedal board.
Speaking of which I just got the Gorm shelf from Ikea that is apparently the DIY pedal board start of choice. Going to get my maint. department at work to make a mitred frame so it fits in at a nice angle and is very sturdy. Not sure what treatment I'm going from there. Might just spray it black and lay down strips of velcro from the hardware store, might sheath it in carpet that velcro on the bottom of pedals will stick to and cut slits for power/patch to come up...not there yet.
I'm headed to something like this:
Here's the URL and here's the list:
